(Sorry for my english)
I'm having a real hard time. I'm taking 20mg of Accutane for my cystic acne and it is causing me a hell of a seborrhoeic dermatitis with every pill (I have seborrhoeic dermatitis since I was a kid) I get a nasty flare up of seborrhoeic dermatitis about ten hours after I take the pill. Then I use a mix of protipic and ketoconazole cream that works really well and calms down the dermatitis and when I'm almost recovered, it's time for the next pill and it comes again! another dermatitis flare up!. These are the strongest flare up I've ever have in my life, which includes my whole face, head,ears, neck and chest. It is very agressive and the itching is driving me crazy, it is as bad as it can be. My derm doesn't believe me that Accutane is causing this. Am I the only one who get this nasty side effect? I've done an extensive research in google and all I can find is that Accutane actually is used to treat seborrhoeic dermatitis ! Why the hell is this happening to me? It doesn't make sence. I'm afraid I will have to stop Accutane again, I'm fighting with this effect as much as I can but the situation is unbearable. I'm even having nightmares about the itch. All this situation is affecting me psychologically, I'm very depressed because this is my third attempt with Accutane and I was not willing to give up this time, otherwise, the acne will kill my face. I don't have any good option. All I want is to reach my cumulative dose, but it will take a lot of time of suffering.
